The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs will be playing with now in the background at least. The weather forecast calls for temperatures in around 27 degrees, with a feels like number more in the very low 20s. Wind speeds around 5 MPH and mostly cloudy. So far, no actual flurries are in the forecast, but those predictions can change on a dime.

There is also reports that Patrick Mahomes has flu-like symptoms and isn’t feeling well this morning. However, he will play in this game regardless.

The field crew at Empower Field at Mile High did have the grass covered, so if the snow is all on the ground they should be able to easily remove the snow and the cover to give both teams a clean field to play on this afternoon.

The snow fall, according to, should stop around 11am mountain time. That will give the field crew enough time to prepare before the game.
